The Surface Pro is the second tablet offering from Microsoft. It is just
coming out now. Unlike Microsoft's earlier Surface tablet it runs the
full version of Windows 8, allowing all Windows programs to run
(including a Java/VASSAL installation), not just Windows RT programs.
However it is more expensive, has a higher resolution display, has more
storage (although note that Windows programs and a full Windows 8
installation take more space too), has less battery life, and is
slightly thicker than the original Surface.
